Things are gearing up for Halloween here, and all of the festivities will thankfully wind down soon. Yesterday at school, the kids had 'Book Character Day' so the boy wore his Luke Skywalker costume and the girl went as Snow White. They were just adorable.
The night before, this is how the girl was planning to go to school in the morning. She was emphatic, if nothing else, but I prevailed. Thank goodness for everyone involved.
When we got home we went straight to our neighbor's house and had a grand time carving pumpkins. The boy wanted his to have bolts like Frankenstein and the girl put a beaded pipe cleaner on the top of hers to dress it up. Both pumpkins exhibit the fact that I am not a master pumpkin carver, but they both have holes and light up when lit, so I call that a success.
Halloween this year is a bit of a mess since it falls on a Sunday. I don't know about y'all, but here in GA, people have ducks when Halloween falls on Sunday because it's sacrilegious and try to mandate that everyone go out trick-or-treating on Saturday, but what winds up happening is that some go on one day and some on the other and it turns into a big mess. What people need to understand around here is that when you hold children's Halloween parties right in the middle of the Georgia-Florida football game, THAT'S sacrilege.
No, this isn't a Halloween costume, but the Man actually did it! We've been talking about getting his head shaved for years and he came home yesterday with it finally done. I think it looks great!
Lastly, our Family and Consumer Sciences teacher ordered several keychains from Keychains for a Cause in custom colors to represent her friends' schools.
The fob in her right hand was free for ordering 5 or more. Thank you for supporting our Relay for Life Team, Ms. Miller!
The morning comes early. Have a safe and happy Halloween.
